Play • 43 min

Jamie Nesbitt is a wife, mother, and freelance journalist hailing from Chicago's Southside. Her work can be found in Ebony, XO Jane, RedEye Chicago, DNA Info Chicago (RIP), Chicagoist, Salon, her own blog Hood Feminism, and other publications.

Jamie gives BrownTown insight on her relationship with her mother growing up, her own entrance to motherhood, and raising her eight-year-old son. Using her experience as a springboard, the group delves into issues in the healthcare system's treatment of Black women, the benefits of prenatal yoga, as well as the community aspect of child rearing.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! BrownTown loves and appreciates you for all that you do. And you gender non-conforming parents, too!
